I was always a slam book kinda girl. For those of you who aren’t from my generation, a slam book is a notebook with a series of questions on it like “What is love?”, “What is your ideal guy/girl like?”, and where you are asked to describe your crush and, at the very end of your entry, write a message to the slam book owner. You pass the notebook around among your friends for them to answer. It was a great way to get to know each other, and also to find out who your friends’ crushes were. Lol!
The cuter your notebook was, the cooler you were. Back then, notebooks you could get from Tickles or Gift Gate made the best slam books, and they usually were either Lisa Frank or Sanrio. Oh, and Papemelroti was pretty big too! Fast forward to today, where only a handful of people I know get excited over notebooks the way I do. I don’t think I’ve seen a slam book in over 15 years. And then, I came upon this Old School Blogging meme on my friend Martine‘s blog, and it really brought me back to my grade school slam booking days! So of course, I am joining in on the fun.
Okay, so here goes…
